Idiot of the Day

Ok, everyone loves traditions, right? So here's a new fun one: the idiot of the day. I'll give you a quote, the name of the person who said it, and a little bit of idiot-slamming, which is always fun (expect to see Hillary Clinton in here a lot). To start with, a perennial favorite of mine:

"We owe it to future generations of Americans to oppose this nomination. If Judge Alito is confirmed, he will serve on the court long after President Bush leaves office, and the progress of half a century on the basic rights of all Americans is likely to be rolled back. He's the wrong justice for justice and the rule of law in America."
-Senator Kerry

Ah yes. Alito, that radical, is out to destroy America. He was nominated by President Bush, we should have known he had some nefarious plan. I'm sure that if a great tragedy occurs and he is confirmed to the Supreme Court, little people everywhere will get trampled on, the government will start making us all go to church, and women will die in back alleys in droves, with coat hangers up their uteruses. Of course, radical views weren't a problem when Ginsburg was nominated; she was much farther to the left of the average American than Alito is to the right, but since she just wanted to elimate gender-specific words from our national vocabulary, she's ok. Never mind that the bench will still be pretty evenly split on most issues, and that Alito is really no more radical than Roberts. The liberals are still in a huff about the fact that Bush didn't choose someone who was ideologically opposed to him in order to make them happy. Also, sounds like someone is trying to get some political capital for 2008. Just a hunch. I would also like to include Senator Kennedy in here, because he's just as bad as Kerry. And while I'm at it, let's throw in Clinton too. 'Cause I just don't like her.
